    Unknown hitchhiker

    This thing popped up in my Sanguinea pot.
    It kinda looks like a tiny creeping fig
    The whole plant is 8 cm tall.
    The stem gets kinda woody at the bottom and branches off in 3 directions.
    It also attracts scale like any other creeping fig

    I couldn't say what the little thing is but I use outdoor mosses in my vivariums and I always get tiny little NO ID plants that pop up, sometimes little mushrooms too. I like the tiny plants and let them grow and see what they become. Like mosses, some do well in enclosures and some will rot away very quickly.

    Don't you ever wonder what some of these little weeds are called? We look at them, and pluck them out, just to throw them away! Their treated like garbage! Years ago, some botanist probably found a small weed, and said: holly cow!! Wait till the university sees what I discovered! Plus, I'm afraid to pick weeds... I'm sure someday when the world is going down the tube (not that it already isn't, LOL) and all living organisms are dieing, I'll be going: Sigh... I helped drive the clovers to extinction...

    Clover is an interesting story. Most people grew clover on their lawns instead of grass, in addition to dandelions (For salad) and vegetables. "weeds" were permitted. Clover was grown because it fixes nitrogen into the soil, looks nice, produces flowers, and is very hardy.

    Then came the scientist who discovered the herbicide that kills clover, not grass. Out launches a massive ad campaign that pressures the average person into growing grass, with aid of the herbicide, under threat of being basically shunned by society. Over time, it evolved into making the lawn that's greener and has fewer "weeds" than your neighbors, until it came to what it is today: Grass being the most pesticided, fertilized, and watered crop in the united states. For what? A lawn that never looks as good as your neighbors, kills wildlife and reduces biodiversity. A weed is not a weed. It's an organism trying to survive. Respect that and give it a chance.
